Technical papers


Some links to a few technical papers on gimbals at the Space Electronics website.

The first is written by my colleagues as an overview of gimbal balancing.

The second is by myself as the primary author and was written for optical guys as a way to introduce the subject of mass properties.

The third paper was written for mass properties guys and introduces imaging and ancillary concepts.

Please note that there is a typo in the first paragraph of page 11 where is says...
"A reasonable approximation says that when jitter causes an image to shift less than 20%, the image will only be marginally impacted. Above 20% will degrade MTF".

what it should say is this...
"A reasonable approximation says that when jitter causes an image to shift less than 20% of a pixel, the image will only be marginally impacted. Whereas a shift of above 20% pixel will degrade MTF".
